Objective To assess prospectively the relationship between fluorodeoxyglucose uptake by lymph nodes, the number of sites of lymph node involvement and cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) cell count. An inverse relationship, if existing, between these variables would provide indirect support for the concept of homing induced apoptosis.
